About this artist

A Canadian teen pop band that experienced modest success during its decade-long run, the Moffatts were comprised of oldest sibling Scott and his triplet brothers Clint, Dave, and Bob. The sons of professional vocalists, the Vancouver-based boys launched their own performing career in 1990, at which time Scott was only seven years old and the triplets just six. The Moffatts were initially marketed as a country act and cut their teeth on the local festival circuit before relocating to Nashville in 1994, where they signed with A&M Records and issued a self-titled debut LP one year later. The album failed to take off, however, and in light of the success of boy bands like the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, the brothers soon made the move to pop. Released in mid-1999, Chapter One: A New Beginning fused well-scrubbed teen pop with some light rock & roll textures. The album proved to be popular in Canada, where five singles charted in the Top 40. Emboldened, the Moffatts moved even closer to the rock camp with Submodalities, which saw the boys working with heavyweight producer Bob Rock. However, despite yielding the band’s first chart-topping single, Submodalities proved to be the Moffatts’ final release. The group disbanded in 2001. ~ Jason Ankeny
